Befriending

Befriending service for older people in North Norfolk

What does it do?

Our Befriending scheme is funded by the National Lottery and is a service for those who are lonely and socially isolated. A Volunteer Befriender will visit to provide companionship on a regular basis.

This is not a shopping, volunteer driver or outing service but rather our volunteers are there to provide emotional support by having a cup of tea, a natter and a reminisce. They may play games or read the client books whilst being a reassuring presence as someone looking out for the best interests of the client. 

All our volunteers are DBS and reference checked for your security.

Who it is for?

The service is available to older people in North Norfolk, the lonely, the disabled, the unwell or the worried well.

Where it is available?
